I open it up for 2 examples because I know it will be difficult. Please provide 2 songs/jams you personally saw LIVE that left you speechless or with your jaw on the floor.

9/22/91 sugar magnolia
9/18/94 So many roads

I'm really anxious to sample some of your submissions.

I'm with you on 9-22-91 it came to mind without even seeing that it was the one you picked but for me it was during the he's gone nobody's fault sequence. Gotta say 9-26-91 had a similar effect also but maybe for different reasons. There are quite a few from 89-90 period that left me skull-fucked but I've gotta Say 7-7-89 left me so dazed it took several years of therapy before I could fully realize that show. Oh I forgot I must limit it to just a couple song so in 7-7-89 the Blow Away and the Scarlet_Fire stand out.

Cool post. For me it was an early experience: both 75. The June show at Winterland, and the September show at the Park. In the first, they were working up the BluesAllah material, and even when just jamming the tightness of the transitions and the powerful stops and starts (drumming, bass) had a profound effect live. Then, for the second, though the material was more traditional, the Truckin/NFA/Sat night series at the end was just fantastic. Best SNight in my personal experience. They even (sort of) did the Eleven!

lobster12: I cannot find the exact date in the 1980's at the Worceter Centrum: 2nd set, pre-drums: Jerry drops a golden "Comes A Time" on our heart, mind and soul and Bobby seemlessly counters with "Hand Jive." The transition notes were perfect; the juxtaposition of the lyrics beyond comprehension; the music of both tunes: shock-and-awesome!

"Comes a time when the blind man takes your hand Says "don't you see?"
"Doing that crazy hand jive...."

Box of Rain breakout at Hampton - I didn't hear a note of music after the instant recognition of what it was. My mind was definitely blown.

Opening notes of the encore on July 13, 1984. Again, mind blown - and two more days at the greek to revel in the same

Had a similar experience with the electric Ripple on 09-03-88. Was actually dumbfounded into silence.

was there for that as well - i thought that string of shows was very forgettable, but that was my one and only ripple and is a moment that has stayed with me for many years.

Agreed probably one of the weakest string of shows I ever saw but the Ripple was beautiful and something I'll never forget.

I saw 'em do an incredible Alligator at the Fillmore West/Carousel in (June-?) 1970, not on tape...

and a jaw-dropping Easy Wind, same year, venue...
I think maybe it was in August.
Pigpen's harp solo was amazing, the whole band were on...


and it was a memorable moment on New Years, '78/'79 when they jammed with John Cipollina on NFA at Winterland

shucks I wouldn't know when to stop. I've had my mind blown by them too many times. Then there are the times where in the moment it is IT but playing it back, not so much. Or vise versa.

I guess I'll go with these

New Years 12-31-89

not the best New Years show ever and kind of short but when they were doing the countdown and the band was playing in the background it ate my mind. I felt like what it must have been like at an acid test, where because the band was not at all the focus they were left to really get it on layer by layer.

Denver 6-28-91

I hated stadium shows but I can not deny the power of the band during drums and space. One guy summed it up about the Mothership landing and acheiving liftoff. It was exactly like feeling I was literally in the movie Close Encounters. VERY poweful.
